It’s A Truck and A Jeep: 2024 Jeep Gladiator (Video) Surprised Us on Everyman Driver

The 2024 Jeep Gladiator stands out as a top choice for drivers who crave adventure and need a truck that can handle the toughest terrain. Whether you’re tackling rocky trails or high-speed off-road environments, the Gladiator is up to the challenge. Even the base Sport model is a capable off-roader, and with a wide range of aftermarket parts available, customization options are endless.

With its unique convertible design, the Gladiator offers the flexibility of a soft-top or hardtop, setting it apart as the only convertible pickup truck on the market. Boasting a maximum payload of 1,725 pounds and a towing capacity of 7,700 pounds, it’s ready for serious work.

The 2024 model features updates like a new Wrangler-inspired grille and an upgraded interior with optional power-adjustable seats and a sleek 12.3-inch touchscreen. New Mojave X and Rubicon X models offer even more luxury and off-road capabilities, while the Willys model is enhanced for greater performance.

What’s New for 2024: The Jeep Gladiator receives quite a few subtle but substantial upgrades for 2024. First, it shares the same redesigned grille as the redesigned Jeep Wrangler. Inside, there’s an all-new dash layout and brilliant 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Jeep Adventure Guides is a new system that delivers information and directions to 62 off-road trails right in the Uconnect system, and a subscription version adds another 3,000 trails. Power-adjustable front seats are now available. There are also new side curtain airbags, and a windshield-integrated antenna. The Mojave X and Rubicon X join the lineup, bundling specific off-road and convenience features. The Overland trim is dropped, but the Willys special edition model is now a regular trim and comes with a new standard locking rear differential and Off-Road + drive mode. A new AEV package adds even more capability to the Gladiator.

Powered by a 285-horsepower V6 engine paired with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, the Gladiator delivers respectable performance. However, its solid front axle and slightly rougher ride compared to competitors may not appeal to everyone.

Despite its rugged off-road prowess, the Gladiator faces tough competition from updated midsize trucks like the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Ford Ranger, and Toyota Tacoma. While it may lack the refinement of its rivals, the Gladiator’s iconic style and unmatched charisma make it a standout choice for adventurers everywhere.
